Stockings, tights and panties

History of the little girl’s underwear


As you all probably agree, it is almost indispensable part of little girls’ chest of drawers.
There was always need to warm the feet and legs. First it was solved by some strips of linen bent around the legs. At the beginning of medieval age first stockings appeared. Because they weren’t elastic, there was need to fix them on the leg by thin ribbon wrapped around the leg. It was the first garter (or suspender). Most likely it was worn by highborn little girls too. Underwear of this time was represented by long chemise. (Rarely short underpants were worn by women, but IMHO not by little girls.)

Later, after knitting techniques were invented, first elastic stockings apppeared, but they still needed to be fixed. in those times (18th century), women and girls wore underpants, which were often connected with short chemise into one part. If you’re trying to guess how they used toilet (in that times, nobility used big wardrobe with seat with pot inside), be sure that these ancient underpants were open in crotch, which allowed somehow convenient using of toilet. It is interesting that little girls usually wore underpants longer than their dress.

At the end of the 19th century, underpants gets shorter, until they ends in the middle of thigh. In those times stockings were buttoned to trouser-leg. It lasted to the twenties of the 20th century. It can be nicely seen in Swedish movies Meg of June Hill (Madicken på Junibacken) and You're out of Your Mind, Meggie (Du är inte klok Madicken). There you can notice even buttons on the stockings.

Later the panties got even shorter and became about as big as present “boxers”. They had no rubber band in the waist, so they needed to be bound by ribbon or had to have a slit on side. In those times, short stocking were fixed by a thin ribbon around the edge. Long stockings used garter belt, looking almost like the present one. Note that garter belt is worn over panties only on advertisement photos, normally is worn UNDER panties.

Children stockings were mostly black or white. Stockings were similarly worn by boys. We are still talking about rich people or town dwellers. In the countryside, stockings looked like woolen knee-highs and people were pantyless till about the fifties of the 20th century.

All these ancient variants maybe looks pretty, but it wasn’t comfortable and convenient at all, mainly for little fingers of that-time princesses. Ribbons loosed, stockings fell and garters got unbraced… After the end of WWII the tights were invented. They became children domain, until the seventies of the 20th century, when miniskirts became popular, and women tights started to be produced. In that moment, nylon tights started to be available for little girls. I do not know when little girls really started to wear these nylon stockings and later nylon tights. Following information is about the situation in Eastern Europe. If any of you is able to add information how it was in the sixties and seventies in his/her country, I’ll be very glad.
In our country in those years, tights were not very popular among children. They were not elastic and often slipped down from the legs. Available colors were white, red, light blue, patterned (rarely) and some horrible yellowish-brown, worn by boys and girls as well. Similar colors were available for nylons. Girls often wore blue gym shorts instead of panties. These gym shorts had rubber band not only in waist but also around the thighs. And they had a pocket on the back. Little girls wore them all the time, because boys weren’t interested in shorts and didn’t want to lift their skirts.

Panties became looking like modern ones in the middle of the fifties of the 20th century. And during the present century there appeared short panties, tanga, thongs, panty, etc. But wearing of thongs by little girls is not recommended by doctors, because while active movement (children are usually more physically active than adults) the thin string in the crotch literally transports faecal germs form anus area right into the vulva.

Today’s situation is different. There is really wide choice of tights available in shops. Many colors, many patterns, striped, with pictures, fleece warm tights, etc. They contain Lycra or other elastic fibres, and they don’t slip down at all. Many little girls love them.

Stockings are worn sometimes, mostly knitted, and often called "thigh-high socks"

These kinds of leg-wears just fit to little girls perfectly. But some doctors warns from wearing nylons in infant age because some adult women’s gynecological problems were spreading among little girls. It is not healthy (except for being outside in very low external temperatures) to wear tights under trousers.

It is interesting that I noticed several times that little girl was very proud when she got her first nylons when she was 5 or 6 years old.
